			Platoon (Greatcoat) (GE864) HMG Platoon (Greatcoat) (GE864)
Armed with the versatile MG34, the HMG platoons of the German army were able to pour fire into an enemy to either suppress them in attack or pin them down in defence.

Mortar Platoon (Greatcoat) (GE865)
While the mortar platoons of the Allied armies have just two tubes, the German equivalent has six 8cm GW34 mortars. This gives the commander of a German infantry battalion timely and flexible local artillery support in a way that the Allies can not match.

			Crews (Greatcoat) (GSO171) Anti-tank Crews (Greatcoat) (GSO171)
The Panzerjäger Abteilung of a panzer division is equipped with 3.7cm PaK36 light anti-tank guns as well as new medium 5cm PaK38 anti-tank guns.

Artillery Crews (Greatcoat) (GSO172)
The artillery of the divisions sent to invade the Soviet Union have been almost universally equipped with the excellent 10.5cm leFH18 howitzer. This sturdy howitzer has superior hitting power than Soviet field guns who still mostly rely on lighter 7.62cm models.

The 5cm leichter Granatwerfer 36 (or 5cm leGrW 36) was developed for the purpose of engaging targets outside of distances which a hand grenade could be thrown. It was standard issue for every German infantry platoon at the beginning of war.

Anti-tank Rifle Team (Greatcoat) (GSO174)
The Panzerbüchse 39 (or PzB 39) was the standard anti-tank rifle of the German Army during the early stages of the Second World War. A refined version of the earlier Panzerbüchse 38, the PzB 39 fired the same specially designed cartridge as it predicator; a 7.92mm projectile housed in a large 94mm long case known as the 7.92x94 Patronen.

Revising Naval Gunfire Support
Naval Gunfire Support (NGFS) in Flames Of War has been receiving a lot of attention lately, with a lot of people finding it rather too effective. Battlefront put out a suggested change to the rules for public feedback. Having reviewed the feedback, we’ve decided to try a different approach to see how that works.

Changes To The Book Pricing Regime
Over the last ten years we have constantly tried to add more value to our printed products while at the same time keeping the design and quality at the highest level. Due to a growth in our buying power  (thanks to your support and an ever-growing player base) we have recently secured a new long-term printing contract that allows us to print for a much lower price. These savings will be reflected in the marketplace by a lowering in price of our entire Flames Of War paper product range.

Tanks-A-Lot For Supporting The Early-war Sale
Thanks to everyone that took part in the recent Early-war Sale over the past couple of weeks. Already we have had plenty of feedback from customers that have received full or partial orders and the team in the factory is working on getting out out-of-stock items produced as soon as possible. Looking at the sale stats it is great to see so many new Soviet and German armies being built in preparation for Barbarossa!
